Portis Interview 9/9

I just checked out a new video that was posted on redskins.com and they were talking directly to Portis who says he is 6% away from being ready to go. He says he felt 10% better than yesterday and if he can feel another 6% better between now and Monday he is a go. All serious, physical practices are done before the game so he will have no contact between now and game time and he said that helps because he can just stretch it out and seee how it feels. This is crazy, yesterday he was eyeing week 2 now it's looking much better for Monday Night???

I hope he's not rushing himself and dislocate his shoulder again. I think Betts and Duckett will do a good job filling in for Portis.

My man's jerking the press around with the 85%, 95% bs talk. No way he doesn't play on MNF.

Re: Portis Interview 9/9

Maybe he should dress to make himself feel better, but Betts/TJ got this game. This is a big game but why risk anything. Risk is what put him in this perdicament. I'd be fine with him sitting this one out. Surely he shouldn't go in the first half at all. I think this would be a good time to get TJ involved and let him loose. It is good to hear that he is getting better but it seems way to earlier to lay it on the line for just the Vike's.

Re: Portis Interview 9/9

I told you guys, this is all "cageyness" to play with the Viking's heads. If he can play, why would he backup Betts or Duckett? I caught all of those quirkly little sly grins on his face during that interview today. I am saying right now he will be starting on Monday night! I don't know how effectiive he will be and I would not start him at RB for my Fantasy team if I were any of you, but he will play. All of the 93.6% ready and "I'll be 96% ready tomorrow" stuff is his character stuff coming out. He is feeling good and Gibbs told him to keep it hush-hush, and he can't hardly do it! Rock on Portis!!!

Sounds like a little bit of Strategy. Lets hope he doesn't fumble when he takes a lick on that shoulder though or reaggravate it.

I have said all along. The man will play. The more they said he wouldn't the more convinced I was that he would.

Smoke and mirrors... I've felt like that all pre-season. I feel like we are all being tricked into being worried when really we have NOTHING to worry about!

Just listened to the interview, Portis is gonna play. I mean, his whole demeanor really let the cat out the bag.

Good ol' Portis. He wouldn't want to miss the fun.
